Afternoon News Update

Calipari has spoken, according to multiple sources on Twitter. Your new starting point guard, for now, is Archie Goodwin:

I have two observations:

  1. Goodwin may be learning the spot, but he's learning it fast, and;
  2. There is no harder player for an opposing point guard to defend than Goodwin. In fact, as far as I can tell, he's indefensible by any current college player.
  • I think this is stupid. I just do. Your mileage may vary.

Alan Cutler reports that Harrow did not consider leaving UK:

So all that Stacey Poole talk we kept hearing was just Wildcats fans being typically paranoid. That's not a criticism, just a fact. "He's probably just saying that" in 3-2-1 ...

  • Kentucky football "Not a wasteland." Well, that's nice to know.
  • Apparently, ESPN's TV deal with the Big East was scuttled by... the schools that left. Heh.
  • Make of this what you will:
  • As for your new OC at Kentucky, consider:

  • I know this isn't basketball, but last time this was discussed, legislation ensued. Would that happen again?
  • Kentucky Hoops 92, Miami 53
  • Forde needs to go wipe his face off. That's all I'm saying.
  • Heh. From KSR, and from a Syracuse blog. Seems like Rick Pitino's having a change of heart. I'll bet it took no longer than 15 seconds ...
  • I get the feeling that Casual Hoya is feeling a touch jilted. Would they have written the same thing if Georgetown had gotten the ACC invite instead of Louisville? We'll never know, I suppose. But he does bring up some interesting points -- not terribly convincing, but not completely looney, either.
  • Heh II:
  • I'm for it, if only because it makes opposing fans so mad.
  • Heh III:

I just have to say it's nice that the coaching search is over, and we can sit back and thumb our nose at everyone else, if only for a little while.
